Retail and Consumer Products - Capital Markets

As the retail sector evolves past the impact of the global pandemic, many businesses in this industry will require access to financing to help them get through a potentially uncertain future.

How you approach capital markets will depend on the business you’re in. More traditional operators may find capital harder to come by, while more innovative retailers could attract investor attention. Securing capital requires a strategy that’s specifically suited to your company’s needs and future plans.

Osler’s Retail Group has decades of experience helping a wide-range of retailers and they access every part of the capital markets. We’ve helped brand name companies raise money through initial public offerings and tap debt markets by issuing investment grade and high-yield debt, and secure private placement funding. We’ve also helped facilitate financing with all types of investors and financial institutions.

With the retail and consumer products sector rapidly evolving, it is essential to have the right financing in place to help you stay operational and take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead.
